I've been hanging around the ol' lounge, on and off, for a couple of years (and was kinda miffed that my designation, until recently, was "New Lounger"... but I digress). I like a good, clean thread. So, I'm careful not to contribute to a thread unless I have something valueable (IMHO) to add. This is why I have never included such posts as "Thanks," or "I'll try that" which does nothing more than move the thread to the top of the list.
<img src=/S/lightbulb.gif border=0 alt=lightbulb width=15 height=15> Well, dang it all, I want to thank those folks who've taken the time to help me. Yet I still want to avoid useless (non-contributory) messages. So, can we (well, "I" at least), have some kinda feedback response for our posts? I dunno, maybe a "Got it!" icon that we can attach directly to the post that helped us? Otherwise some kind of private message capability (from one lounger to another) so we can send out thanks without cluttering up the discussion forum.
